Was looking through my old albums yesterday and found one of my favorites from Jimmy McGriff. Jimmy was a very talented jazz-organist. However, his music was more than just jazz, it was a mixture of bop and funk that has you dancing through almost all his music. On this particular album “Let’s Stay Together,” which I also call his “remake album,” remake in a good way. The entire album is instrumental, with some sick beats I think any jazz fan would love. His reinterpretation of Isaac Hayes’s iconic theme “Shaft,” was a masterpiece! The beat is so smooth and rich with base. I love base in jazz music. Absolutely!
